    General CommentDude, y'all don't understand! This has to be the coolest song on the whole fruckin' album. Seriously. Ok, put this album in your stereos or what have you and skip to this song, turn the volume up really really really really loudly and listen towards the end of this song. Maynard is whispering different lines from the songs on the album. The first line he whispers is "Unmistakable noise I was hearing..." which I think fits perfectly cause I'm sure not a lot of people realize what's going on at this part of the song. Your best bet would be to get headphones and a disc-man and turn the volume up the whole way, you can hear it best that way. Freakingly amazing.

    General CommentI'm not sure what Iced was thinkin..
    Personally I have no idea what this song means at all, but I find it surprising that he hadnt heard the end part, thats one of the first things I noticed about the song the first time I listened to it..
    It has something from about 4 different songs in it,..
    Personally, this song is my favorite from the whole album, it's a bit short, but it almost makes me cry, and the music itself is so simple but so beautiful...
    Anyhow.. the words at the end I believe are all from about every song once I listen, at the end it gets jumbled around alot...

    General CommentOrestes is great but 3 Libras is the most touching and emotional to me. But this is just my opinion. Orestes is an amazing song as well!

    General CommentThis song is simple but great. I love the begenning, and how the lyrics just repeat themselves, there is nothing to hate about this song. I also think Brena is amazing, i think by far it is the best song on the album, although the whole album is great. the lyrics and the music.

    General Commentyou know that award for “most improved” that teachers give a kid in second grade or so, on the day everyone gets an award because everyone is a beautiful and unique snowflake? this song gets that award. the transformation it allows from the studio version to a live performance is unmatched. I’d like to hear another artist that has mastered the use of the sigh as artistically as maynard has. that’s all you can do when you’ve been over this so many times before. I think this song is a useful segue to the next album. a credit to the cyclic nature of learning, all the while moving forward to heal. let us hope pain allows it.

    *sigh*
